Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have no idea where to begin. I can't seem to elaborate on myself.
But I suppose if I could describe myself fully and completely
within a few paragraphs on a dating website then I wouldn't be very
interesting, would I?
Here are a few highlights:
I'm an east coast girl through and through who loves Northern
California. I've been here 12 years but never find the landscape
any less dramatic every time I see it. There are so many sunny,
beautiful days and on any one of them it kills me to be inside.
Hiking, swimming and climbing are my favorite activities. And I
hope to do some backpacking and camping in the spring. I've also
been taking a woodworking class for about the past year (my current
project is a chair... I'm not totally sure how it'll turn out yet
but even if i screw it up completely I'm loving the learning
I like to be active. I used to lead a run club but a foot injury
turned me into a swimmer. I now swim whenever I can (I'm a member
of the masters swim team and just joined a synchronized swimming
team) and can't imagine giving it up. And I've taken on rock
climbing this last year and I'm totally addicted!! (and catching on
quick, i think. :)). But don't get me wrong, I definitely know how
to relax, too... a crossword in the park or a horror movie and
homemade popcorn on a rainy day.
I'm an art gallery manager for a living so, consequently, go to a
fair amount of art openings and events. But I don't take myself too
seriously. I'm goofy and clumsy and sarcastic. My idea of a good
time is boardgames with friends or bowling.
I'd like to find someone who enjoys outdoor activities like hiking
or camping or kayaking (I'm not good at it but i love it) or
something else that I don't do but would be willing to teach/share
with me (I'm always open to new things). And someone who is ok with
doing dorky things with me like history walks and cribbage games
and ghost tours. I love a sense of humor. Also a sense of
exuberance -- an openness of personality. Patience, honesty,
integrity... all obviously important.
I've been described as warm, generous, non-judgmental, funny,
sincere, goofy, sarcastic. The more you get to know me, the more
I hope this glimpse of me is helpful.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I didn't know which section to put this in but...
I was IMing a friend the other day about a daydream I had about my
Mr. Right. I thought I'd share...
me: i had a weird little moment at the auction last night.
i saw this guy walking around.
he wasn't anything super special.
but he was tall and slim and had wild dark hair and scruff.
not toooo good looking to be cocky. ;)
anyway i had this total daydream about what i imagined him to be
and in doing so, i kind of envisioned part of the type of
guy/relationship i'm looking for/want.
Friend: which is?
one with a lot of pizza and sex?
me: well i can't really put it into words. it was a daydream.
he was just really kind and goofy and super smart.
and really funny in a dorky sort of way.
he was enthusiastic about things.
happy, too. but not in an unrealistic hippie sort of way.
with lots of integrity (but not in a self-righteous way).
but mostly that we could talk and talk and talk about anything. and
we made each other laugh a lot.
me: but what really really hit me.
Friend: sounds nice
me: was that he was super super kind to me.
just adored me. but was so sweet to me.
Friend: you do deserve it
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hum the James Bond theme song every time I drive over the Golden
Gate Bridge. :/
And I not so secretly want a trad-leading boyfriend who can take me
climbing every weekend and who's fantastic in bed. :) (like...
really into sex and climbing.)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for a relationship. Well, let me clarify... I'm very
independent and not looking for a relationship merely to be with
someone. I certainly don't need that. So, really... I'm looking for
love. I know it's a process of meeting people, finding someone
wonderful that you have a great connection with, spending time with
them, getting to know them and seeing where it goes. I'm not at all
saying I'd jump into something on the first date. i'm not desperate
for it or in a rush (in fact, I think I'd freak out if you rushed
me). But, ultimately, love and relationship are what I'm looking
for. So, please (pretty please) don't waste my time if you a) don't
know what you want, b) just broke up with someone and need a
rebound, c) are bored and lonely, d) aren't emotionally available
e) want to casually date because it's fun to go to dinner/drinks
with a nice, pretty girl on occasion but don't want it to go
further or f) have any "unfinished" relationships. In no way am I
placing judgement on a, b, c, d, e or f. I'm just not interested in
any of that. I know it's not going to make me very popular on this
site but I want to be completely upfront that my goal for okcupid
is love and a relationship. I know there must be wonderful,
interesting, smart, funny attractive men on here who are looking
for the same. :)
